5 out of 5 eggsRoad runner fast

Pros: Have not found anything that can slow this card down yet. Runs my twin Asus 1920x1080 21.5" monitors with crystal clear and precise visuals. Sitting in an Antec 902 case all fans on low, GPU fan at 40% and idling at 53*C. During intense UT3, Crysis, DoD gaming, temps stay below 76*C with fans still all on low.

Cons: I knew the card was big when I purchased it so I can't complain about the size. What I could suggest though is for GPU makers to consider using more compact/smaller technology perhaps utilizing the tech CPU's use to make everything smaller and use less energy while getting the same things done.

UPDATE your drivers...the provided cd's are almost always out of date.

5 out of 5 eggsFOR THE WIN!

Pros: Fast. So fast it will melt your face. Don't waste money on the 295, get this card instead. I plan on getting a second. :-)

Cons: Big. It rubs against the hard drive cage in my Thermaltake Tsunami. Not a small case by any means. Knock out a wall for this thing.

Other Thoughts: No thoughts, buy one. BUY IT!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card so far!

Pros: Awesome card! Upgrade from a 8800gtx SLI setup to one of these and left one of my old 8800s running physx. Blows the old setup out of the water! Getting great frame rates on all my games, definitely worth the money I spent.

Cons: The factory settings for the fan speeds on this card were to low. When just browsing the net and whatnot all is fine, but once I started playing some graphically demanding games the card heated up to almost 80 degrees C and starting having errors. The auto fan speeds only adjusted to I think 50 or 60 percent to compensate which wasn't enough! The EVGA precision tool allows you to on the fly, manually adjust all the clock speeds and also the fan speed, so for those of you who don't feel like adding additional fans just to cool this beast, make sure you install the precision tool, monitor your temps, and see if you need to manually adjust your fan speeds. Everyone's case is different, and you may not have to do a thing. For me though, I have to go in and set the speeds to around 80% or so, but when I do that the card runs good between 50-60 degrees C. You can set up profiles for this as well, but I haven't looked into it yet.

Other Thoughts: It is a big card, but was the same size as my 8800gtx's so if you are already running those, then be assured this will fit no problems. Requires TWO six pin power connectors per card, so keep that in mind as well.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Card - HUGE GPU!

Pros: Renders graphics amazingly well on dual screen (1) LG 42" LCD HDMI on DVI 1080p + (1) Samsung 23" LCD 16:9ws.
Using my older 8600GTS as an nVidia PhysX dedicated card, this setup plays Mirrors Edge at max settings (only allows 4x anti-a max) crystal clear and without a hiccup.
Included Precision OC Utility works great handling freqs (core/mem/shader) and fan speeds for BOTH GPUs (8600 is Gigabyte). I did NOT have to uninstall any drivers before installing as I already had latest drivers from nVidia and nVidia control panel allows selecting of PhysX GPU (One note: if installing this card as primary, install into PCIe 2.0 slot used by previous GPU and move previous GPU down to next PCIe 2.0 slot (if you have more than 2 PCIe 2.0 slots, move to older card to third PCIe 2.0slot!) Amazing card, amazing fps (even nulled video lag on Secondlife/Crysis/BF2142/Bioshock/MoH/AoE/BF2)

Cons: **this is NOT really a con, unless you already have a tight space to work with**This card is extremely LARGE.. wait.. maybe I'm not stating that right.. This card is MASSIVELY, MAJORLY, (insert your own)-LY LARGE! Currently residing in an Apevia Full ATX Tower, from expansion slots on back plate (takes up 2 btw), it BARELY squeeks by the vertical HDD bay supports. (say 2 or 3 mm/gets wedged if you don't align it perfectly). Power supply hooks to side of card near back corner (side facing you, next to HDD bay supports) and requires *2* 6-pin on 12v. Specs recommend a min 550w, but, if you run multiple fans, drives, opticals, gpu's, etc, get a higher output PSU. Why set your sys up for premature failure? (though it may run, if you continually rob sys components of power/run low watts, you actually cause severe damage to everything from fan motors to cpu's etc, dont risk it ;) . )

Other Thoughts: The included software (Newer version on website available), on Auto settings, keeps fans running relatively slow (20% on GTX275, 30% on 8600). At idle, this is fine as the GPUs never exceed 40-45c (still high for my taste) however, once you fire up, say, Photoshop or even MS Office, your temps slowly start to climb to near 50+ and the fans stay at the above speeds. While running Mirrors Edge on full, the fans did not pickup speed until temps hit over 65c (ouch especially to my 8600!) and even then, they only increased 10% ea. Precision allows up to 10 profiles, and DOES allow setting adjustments for fans only as a profile.
**Sorry to be so long winded, but, the more you know, the better off you, and your system, will be**

5 out of 5 eggsNo Squealing!

Pros: Quality, pre-Overclocked, Stability, Price/Performance, EVGA!

Cons: none... so many free games at the time it was almost free :-)

Other Thoughts: Picked this up to replace a GTX 285 sold to a friend. Under a load the 285 made an awful squealing noise, and when I started folding became constant :-/ Can't hear anything but fans while Folding now, yay! Able to knock the Shaders up to 1656MHz, and could probably go higher. Haven't noticed any difference between the 275 & 285 in Left4Dead, CoD4, CoD5, Champions! Online (Beta), Batman: Arkham Asylum (Demo), GTA IV, TF2, CSS, Section 8 (Beta), Facebook (lol, j/k)... You can stop thinking about getting this card and Add to Cart at this time 8-)

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card

Pros: Better than a standard GTX 285. I upgraded from an eVGA 8800 GTX and am very impressed at how well it does. I am currently running SLI with two of these cards with no problems and great performance.

Cons: The only thing I can think of is that this card takes up two slots. Heating not a problem with a well ventilated case.

Other Thoughts: Running a 790i For The Win Mobo
Q9650 overclocked to 3.6
8 gb of OCZ Reaper (2 x 1800 2 x 1600)
eVGA 275 For The Win SLI
2 x WD Velociraptor 300 gb in RAID 0
Creative Labs X-FI Xtreme Gamer
1000w Thermaltake Toughpower
Thermaltake SpinQ CPU cooler
